It is hard to believe that we are closing out the third grading period today! Grades will be posted on Infinite Campus once we return from spring break on Friday, April 5.

Bring Someone Special to Music Day

Last week, each first-grade class participated in "Bring Someone Special to Music Day." Families and friends of our first-grade students were invited to join their child's music class for an "informance-style” program. Students performed some of their favorite songs and dances while the audience learned a bit more about each and got to see inside what a typical music class is like. We ended the event with the loved ones of our first graders joining them to learn the folk dance "Chimes of Dunkirk." After the program, PTO generously sponsored a cookie reception for students and their loved ones.

Join the Beachwood Neurodiversity Family Network for a support group discussion on Sunday, April 14, from 2 to 4 p.m. in the Beachwood High School Community Room. We will go around and share our recent “highs” and “lows” as well as anything else you would like to talk about. All are welcome, whether or not you identify as a neurodivergent family. Due to the sensitivity of the topics that may be discussed, as well as privacy concerns, this meeting is intended for adults only. This meeting will be held in person, but note that our May support group will be held virtually. Light refreshments will be provided.
